Ninetales Sculpture by LeiliaClay Ninetales Sculpture by LeiliaClay
***Available for purchase in my Etsy shop here: [link] ***

I finally got the courage up to sculpt a Ninetales! XD Those tails were very intimidating to me, and they definitely did end up being quite a pain! I'm pretty happy with how she turned out, though. :)

Ninetales is approximately 2in tall. She is made from a mixture of Super Sculpey/Sculpey Firm polymer clay, painted with acrylics and glazed for protection.

What a beautiful sculpture! I have to ask, which brand/color of acrylic did you use? I've been looking for a close match and this is straight-on.

Haha, thanks so much! It's quite an old sculpture now. ;) As far as paint, I use Delta Ceramcoat craft acrylics. Though I never use colors straight out of the bottle, I always mix multiple colors together to get the shades that I want on a sculpture. :)

Very, very cool! I was very fond of the Chibi button, so I'm glad it went to a great home as well!

Thanks so much for the support! ^^

You have Etsy! My friend just discovered that website and now she's making all sorts of cute sculpey things - like milkshakes and things. Dunno if she's opened a shop yet, but she's made an account on here (her cameras out though).
Back to your art, I do love it and I can see how those tails would be a bother. If it was me, I would have given up haha so well done :D .
That and it wouldn't have stood up. Nothing wants to stand up for me lol.

Oh yes, Etsy is great! Good luck to your friend, running an Etsy shop is a lot of fun. :)

Thanks so much! Get the clay to stay up can be a challenge for sure! Sometimes I have to use a little foil or wire to help support it. :)

Yeah, I went round her house and decided to make a magicarp because I thought it would be relatively easy but I forgot about the whole standing up thing again and now it's whiskers are like a mile underneath it. Oh well, it can be a necklace or something :P.
That and I did it from memory and it doesn't look too much like a magicarp ):

Haha, I always have to look it up to make sure I'm sleeping it correctly, because in my head I do want to spell it Ninetails. XD

Well, I suppose that would be the more logical spelling ^^; But I guess it's just the same with Muk, really :p

Thank you! :D Yep, those tails were definitely daunting, mostly just figuring out how to fit them all onto it's back end. XD
